                                Project Based Assistance Program Term Sheet

Program Description
The Project Based Voucher Development Fund is administered by Metropolitan Baltimore Quadel (MBQ) as a
part of the Special Mobility Housing Choice Voucher Program (“the Program”). A goal of the Program is to
increase the supply of affordable rental housing opportunities in non-impacted neighborhoods throughout the
Metropolitan Baltimore region. Eligible properties are to be located in high opportunity/non-impacted census
tracts in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard, and Queen Anne’s Counties and Baltimore City.
The Program will provide an average of up to $85,000 per unit for acquisition, rehabilitation and/or new

Eligible Uses
Units subsidized by the Program must serve low-income households referred from Metropolitan Baltimore
Quadel’s (MBQ) waiting list of families who have completed MBQ’s comprehensive housing counseling
program. Program funds can be used to cover acquisition costs associated in the following property types:

•       Existing multifamily properties
•       Existing single family and row/town homes
•       New construction of multifamily properties
•       New Construction of scattered site homes, including single family homes, duplexes, row homes, etc.

**For multifamily and contiguous row homes, funding is limited to not more than 25% of the units to ensure
re-concentration does not occur.

General occupancy units with a mix of unit sizes ranging from one (1) through four (4) bedrooms may be
considered for funding. Favorable consideration is placed on units that contain three (3) or more bedrooms.

seeking a better life, not just a place to live. MBQ has established a family readiness program to help families
achieve that goal. MBQ assigns each family a case manager who works with the family to prepare them for the

completed the MBQ family readiness program. The landlord must select residents from among the applicants
referred by MBQ.

•        Post Occupancy Support: MBQ’s case managers will provide ongoing support to both the family and the
landlord for two years after the initial move-in. If issues develop that affect a family’s ability to be successful
in their new community, MBQ staff is available and can assist the family and landlords in resolving these issues.
